2015 NBA All-Star Game: Live Game Thread

New, comments

The NBA's yearly defense-free exhibition - commonly referred to as the All-Star Game - returns to New York City for its 64th installment tonight. No Sixers will participate tonight, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't watch.

Stephen Curry faced more defense in Saturday's Three-Point Shooutout than he'll probably see tonight.

We're probably a couple of seasons away from the Philadelphia 76ers having any representatives in the NBA's yearly showcase, but the 2015 NBA All-Star Game (presented by Kia) should be filled with plenty of entertaining moments nonetheless. The Western Conference is going for its fourth win in the past five years, while the East will need to figure out how to "guard" Curry, Thompson and Harden in a game where defense is typically optional.

Enjoy.
